WHAT IS THE SECRET TO AVOIDING SCRATCHY SKIN FOR MY BABY?
Although he cant speak, when my little baby screws up his face and wriggles awkwardly, I know theres something wrong.
Last year, when my baby was just 6 months old, Charlie, Founder of Beaming Baby asked me to find out why so many babies suffer from Scratchy Skin. I wanted to do the research, because this is something very close to my heart. Im Lucy, Beaming Babys New Product Specialist.
I WAS AMAZED AT WHAT I DISCOVERED!
Formaldehyde is used in science labs -
why is it used on standard baby clothes?
Formadehyde was described in 2011 by the US National Toxicology Program as "known to be a human carcinogen". Amazingly this is one of the cocktail of chemicals of chemicals used to finish Standard Baby Clothes, to stop them wrinkling and to add an articifial crispness. Rajana Katta MD, Associate Professor of Dermatology advised me to seek out garments labelled Chemical Free.
Harsh chemicals are used in most Baby Clothes,
like those from Tesco, Mothercare, Gap, even Mini Boden and The White Company. These companies use chemicals like Formaldehyde, Azo Dyes, Dioxin, Bromines, Urea Resins and Sulfonamides on your babys clothes.
The only way to be certain that You are Giving Your Baby the Healthiest Start to Life, is to find clothes marked with a Chemical Free label.
AM I ALONE?
With all these High Street names using Harsh Chemicals in their Baby Clothes, it comes as no surprise that Baby Sensitive Skin Problems have increased in the UK by 500% in the last 50 years. (Dermatology IS 2012).
Babies in the UK currently suffer from sensitive skin problems an average of one week in every month.
